I've been thinking about this and the victims claim they were taking a family photo. All 25 of them
People crowd in together and the photographer steps back then tells them to get closer together (I assume with their backs to the ocean so the ocean serves as a back drop for the picture). This puts the photographer/camera at the doorway or slightly inside the doorway.
2 rows of people? Possibly 3 all shoulder to shoulder?
Is it possible that they compacted the weight to a specific area of the deck and caused an overload to a specific spot?
